Bio and Links
Bio Photo Prior to the late 1990s I never thought much about our family history. I always presumed both sides were immigrants from Europe who came in the late 19th century, lived in tenements in New York City and eventually made their way elsewhere. In the late 1990s a relative sent out blank forms for us all to fill out. They also had a sketch of a family tree they had made. It showed connections on my mom's side to colonial New England! I was hooked and I've never looked back since. Recently a DNA test confirmed that my direct paternal ancestor was John Chandler, an emigrant to the Virginia colonies in 1610. I am now a member of the Chandler Family Association and trying to find out how our family surname changed from Chandler to Jernigan -- my biggest brick wall by far!

RE: Valeriano & Danzero
Hi Barry, Are these the individuals that you would like a transfer for? If so, would it be possible to send me the Memorial Numbers for them. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, but we closed on our new home and have been really, really busy trying to get situated. Julie

RE: William and Catherine Valerio
Hi, So happy to have found your relatives and posted their information. Would you like me to transfer their memorials to your care? I really don't mind and would prefer that family be cared for by their loved ones. If not, that is ok too. Sincerely, Julie

RE: Ernest Emmett Jernigan
His father was married to my mother's sister so I guess he would be considered a "step-cousin." Even though I did not know Ernest, I knew his father Carlton or "Uncle Carley" most of my younger life. You can transfer him to me if you would like.

Knighten Roots
Willis "Bill" Robert Knighten my great grandfather and was the child of Willis Wright Knighten which was married to Daisy Willcut in Alabama. Willis Wright Knighten's occupation was a Brakeman for the Railroad and also he was known for his moonshining abilities. This I know because of recorded time he spent in Rains County Prison for the offenses. Being with the Railroad he moved his family to White Oak Texas. They are buried in White Oak Cemetery, White Oak, Greg County, Texas. Willis Wright Knighten's father was Willis Franklin Knighten of Cullman County Alabama. Willis Franklin Knighten was married to Mary Elvira Young they are both buried in Cleveland Cemetery, Cleveland, Conway County, Arkansas with many of their children. If my memory serves me correctly Mary Elvira Young was the daughter of Daniel Young.

RE: We are probably related to
All this bunch were from Hueytown abt 40 miles with no roads between mine and Trussville. I've never found any connection. These researchers have mixed up all the goodwin families in jefferson county in order that they all might be connected to Theo. Goodwin, known Rev. Soldier. Any info I posted is quickly hijacked by these researchers. I discovered old WPA cemetery records in library, I posted them and within a week they were tied to them. Gravestones pictures of my people have been moved to a different cemetery and used for there people's stone. The only connection was a preacher who started a church in Hueytown and later in life started a church near Trussville. He preformed Goodwin marriages for both families but never over lapped families. This is the problem I have with my family's research. Ancestry.com can be more trouble than its worth at times.

RE: We are probably related to
I've came across all those surnames while researching my Goodwin Line from around Trussville but I've never found a relation with them.

RE: Knighten, Young & Chandler
Their son Willis Wright Knighten should be with them in 1880. He stayed in Ala after them and then went to Texas. Here is a link to his death certificate on www.familysearch.org https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/K3SX-N8C

This should clear up your doubts.

RE: Knighten, Young & Chandler
You talking about Mary Elivra Young Knighten who married Willis Franklin Knighten. They moved out to Arkansas after 1890. They died out there. Willis was the son of Joseph Henry Knighten and his first wife, Martha Ann Woodard Knighten. Joseph's second wife was Rebbecca Chandler. You can trace them out on Findagrave. If you need more info write me email, I'll send my phone # with reply. I'll be glad to tell you what I know.

Hello
Yes, I am presently working the genealogy on the Knighten side of my family and you are correct on Willis Wright Knighten and Daisy Willcutt. This is my line, I'm still recording information daily as I research deeper into the ancestry. If you would like, I have a lot of information on the Knightens posted on trabalpages.com. I could invite you to the page, if you provide me your email address. Thanks, Howard Teer
